Scanning in Photoshop
Lift the scanner lid.
Place the picture to be scanned face down on the top-right
scanning area.
Lower the scanner lid.
Open Photoshop 5 by going to START, PROGRAMS,
ADOBE, PHOTSHOP 5.0, and choose “PHOTOSHOP 5.0.2”
Go to FILE, IMPORT, and choose “TWAIN_32…”
The computer will automatically load the HP Scanner program.
Using the Scanner
• Preview the picture by clicking this button.
• The scanner will warm-up if it has been idle for more than ten
• Using the “cross cursor” and select the area you want to be
scanned. You don’t have to be precise, but leave a little extra space
around the picture because you can resize the picture later after
zooming in.
• Click the zoom-in button.
• Now you can resize the picture by putting the pointer on the side of
the border. Click and hold while you drag to resize on each side:
top, bottom, left, and right as they need to be resized.
• On the Menu Bar, go to SCAN and choose “PLACE IMAGE”.
• The HP Scanner window will automatically close and the picture
will be in the new window in the Photoshop program.
Editing in Photoshop
• The picture you just scanned may not have the correct or best
color balance. A quick way is to let Photoshop determine the
best color balance. However, if you don’t like what Photoshop
did, you can do it manually.
• Let’s start with automatic color adjustment.
• On the menu bar, go to IMAGE, ADJUST, and choose AUTO
LEVELS or the shortcut for keyboard: Shift+Ctrl+L.
• You may see a significant difference or slightly depending on
the quality of the original picture. If you are not please, you can
undo it, Ctrl+Z.
• The next slide will show you how to adjust the color manually.
Adjusting Color Manually
• On the menu bar, go to IMAGE, ADJUST, and LEVELS or keyboard
shortcut: Ctrl+L. A small window appear similar to the one below.
Adjust the color balance by moving any of these lever to your liking.
Make sure you check the “Preview” to see the changes as you move
the levers. Click “OK” to accept or “CANCEL” to undo changes.

Creating Backgrounds
• Photoshop requires that you define the size of your
working area in pixels or inches when you want to create a
new image.
• Most computers with 15” and 17” are set to 800x600
pixels. If you are not familiar with pixels, you can use
inches, instead.
• The next slide will show you how to create and define a
new image file.
Creating a New Image File
• On the menu bar, go to FILE and NEW. A new window
appears similar to the one below.
Choose between
pixels or inches.
* Choose one
that you intend
to create.
* Transparent is a good
choice for creating
multiple layers.
